    If the advice is to do nothing and ride it out, I can see why Murphy was brought in.
    laissez faire is the best fair, am I right?

      Well Leo also said to stay high which I think is totes responsible advice from a doctor..

      1. theo kretschmar schuldorff

        He also said to stay back, which has been consistent advice from the ruling class ever since CJH.

    its fine. nothing is happening. the weather department are another arm of entertainment now. dramatising every gust of wind that comes our way. wheeling out useless ministers with rolled up sleeves to add to the drama.

      it’s calm blue skies & sunshine in Stillorgan right now, was a bit of squally wind & rain earlier but nothing major

      and I’m hearing first hand it’s grand out Galway direction

      this is all a massively overhyped pile of my rear business


      the current generation helicoptered & surveilled to within an inch of their lives, unable to hang shelves, cook properly for themselves, afraid of a bit of wind and rain

        Not a flutter of a leaf where I am in Dublin 20.
        All that stocking up of gin, tonic, lemons, limes, juniper berries for NOTHING!
        Still, wouldn’t declare a ‘massively overhyped pile’ of your bottom until Saturday, in fairness.

            I buy the cheaper Gordons these days (2 x 70cl for €35 when SuperValu offer it), though I do upscale now and then to Dingle or Hendricks, the latter with cucumber. Elderflower tonic is gank, as is pink gin (sickly sweet). I like Fever Tree Mediterranean, or better still Grapefruit Tonic if I can get it. The berries like a little squeeze before sprinkling in four or five. When I lived in Africa, G+T was a necessary sundowner. I’m happy to re-apply its medicinal qualities to current climate…

            my eldest one is doing the bar service now
            keeps banging on about a bottle of stuff called Tanqueray

            grapefruit tonic sounds the business, I’ll have to give that a go

            last year we found some nice bar & steak place in Bilbao where we got ossified on the best G+T I’ve ever had, never touched it up to that point, can’t stay away from it now!

          3. Spaghetti Hoop

            Tanqueray is a good gin. But any mixer masks the quality in my view. My rich and resourceful landlady of yore used to buy the Gordons and just infuse it with herbs from her garden. Aside from junipers you can add peppercorns and cardamon pods too. Macerating is when you plunge berries like sloes into it for a few months. Incredible spirit.

    It’s all fine don’t worry- posh boy has ordered Fallon & Byrne hampers for everyone left homeless.

    Evelyn Cusack on the path of the Storm in the lunchtime new reports – “The storm will go inland northwest of Mayo and Donegal”. I’m heading for Sligo, it’s never mention on Met Eireann, must be some sort of magic weather border that doesn’t affect them.

  5. Tea And Brexits

    It’s gonna mostly impact the west coast counties, so what’s the panic nationally?

  6. some old queen

    It’s fine lads- posh boy is on RTE next- stop necking the gin ‘n grapefruits- all is good- nobody will homeless.

    Well- there is a lot of hot air but- enough of posh boy
